TO THE EDITOR. Sir, —The pork in the auction room referred to by your correspondent "Wallaby" was of good quality, but badly dressed. There was only one carcase of this description offered, while seven or eight other: carcases offered at the same sale were of the primest quality.. The mutton-was also of prime and medium quality, the former bringing l£d per lb, and the latter 2£d. I have bought and used both qualities myself, and can bear testimony that better mutton cannot be obtained in the district. I am, I think, quite as particular about what I eat as "Wallaby" or anyone else. The beef offered at the auction room referred to was also of first quality,, and if "Wallaby" will step round to the auction room again I Avill be pleased to show him an assortment of meat which cannot be beaten anywhere. Butcher meat may be perfectlysound and wholesome, but badly dressed, and " Wallaby " has evidently been led astray by appearance. In fairness to the vendors and the auctioneers, I think it is only right these facts should be made known.—l am, etc., '■■■, , Thomas WmTTryGToy.
